What DE are you using (ie KDE, Gnome, et cetera)?

You can change folder icons but not file icons as far as I know...

I think its possible, but you have to fiddle around with the mimetype icons of your current icon theme. If you installed the icon theme as a normal user, then it sould be somewhere in ~/.kde/share/icons.
